Bowling has been reinvented many times over the past seven thousand years but especially in the last 30. This is the fascinating physics of balls, oil, lane and pins. A portion of this video was sponsored by Salesforce. Go to salesforce.com/veritasium to learn more.

Huge thanks to Steve Kloempken and all of Storm Bowling for letting us visit and get a glimpse into the crazy world of bowling.
Huge thanks to legends Chris Barnes and Pete Weber for taking the time to bowl with us.
Huge thanks to Creative Electron for their help with getting the bowling balls X-rayed. Check out their work here: creativeelectron.com/
Thanks to Ron Hatfield and James Freeman for their help with research. Check out their great book, Bowling Beyond the Basics: ve42.co/HatfieldFreeman
Thanks to the United States Bowling Congress (USBC) and Professional Bowlers Association (PBA) for their help with accessing archival data and footage.
Special thanks to Rod Cross for physics consultation.
Thanks to Bill Guszczo for giving us the idea to make this video in the first place.

My first 300 was with a Brunswick T2 my second was with a Storm El Nino Both still ABC everything after was USBC but I've got 298s 299s 300s and a 799 and 853 series for 3 games and my high series for 4 games at age 17 in 1994 was 968 scratch throwing a Turbo X where we bowled 2 games then move a pair and bowl 2 more. Pete Been Beast since frame 1 game 1 perfect 300 out the gate won one hundred bucks and sealed his destiny and fate! The guy is nothing less then GREAT! His pops was special to so I'm sure that it's the case that right off from the jump made Pete step up and elevate! Chris Barns is a machine that's why he beat the machine! His wife Linda can pitch the rock and kick ass as well! Great video. Now go in depth on the pinsetters AMF 82/30s 82/70s 82/90s 90 XLs 8800 Golds Brunswick As the A2s with jetbacks they now have one that sure looks like a Marrige of both machines then there is the Mendez machines... You can skip that part. Then the pins are Brunswick AMF Am flight 2s and then Twister but they are not used much anywhere THE AmFlights 2s are the best.

I just want to take this opportunity to brag about how I once made a 7-10 Split. It didn't show up on the electronic display board, so I went to the office to get them to tweak it. I was never gonna pull that off again, so I wanted to make sure it was official! When he mentioned Nine Pin Bowling, I thought: "How do you make a triangle out of nine pins?" But then I figured they probably had them in a diamond formation (1,2,3,2,1, rather than the familiar 1,2,3,4). Having said that, maybe they went with 1,3,5 , but that would make it hard to get a strike, wouldn't it?

Years ago, at my office, we had a league bowler who seemed an absolute marvel to the uninitiated. There was a bowling alley across the street, and once in a while after work we'd all go over, ostensibly to bowl, but mostly to watch him. To his coworkers, he appeared as good or better than the pros on TV, and newcomers would always ask why he himself wasn't up on the screen. He'd laugh and explain how we were all bowling on a "house shot" - i.e., a recreational oil pattern - and that house shots were easier to score on. He said this was no secret, that most regular bowlers were aware of the difference between patterns used for customer play - even league play - and those used for pro play. He assured us that if he had to bowl on pro patterns, we'd soon see the difference between him and the pros. I think it was pretty classy of him to be honest. I'm afraid that if I had been he, I'd have been tempted to describe myself as an undiscovered Don Carter.

Great episode on bowling. Do tennis next! There is soooo much to talk about with tennis in regards to spin and friction. In addition to topspin, tennis players routinely use backspin, side-spin, and spiral-spin as well. If you really want to have some fun, try explaining the physics of the kick serve. This is a serve in tennis where the ball curves through the air in one direction, dips down, and then when it hits the ground it bounces in the opposite direction!!! Then there's the different court surfaces, hardcourt, clay, and grass, and how each spin response to those. If the surface has more friction then topspin will make the ball kick up higher. Then for backspin the ball can react differently depending on it's incoming velocity. If a ball hit with backspin is slow (in the horizontal direction) then when it hits the ground it stops short and bounces higher, but... if a ball hit will backspin is traveling faster then it will skid and stay low. Tennis players know and use all of these spins and reactions off the court to their advantage . Pro tennis players are masters of spin and knowing the effects of spin on a ball. It's all part of the game. For more on the physics of tennis I recommend the book _The Physics and Technology of Tennis_ by Broady, Cross, and Lindsey, and the updated version _Technical Tennis: Racquets, Strings, Balls, Courts, Spin, and Bounce_ by Cross, and Lindsey.

I never learned how to spin the ball as you throw, I have always thrown the ball from the center, or almost center. Almost center, because a true center hit will cause a split. You want to hit that head pin, just off of head-on to send them all colliding/falling.

Interesting. I love ten pin bowling. It is pure recreation and a game for fun. Yet today, ten pin bowling is much stronger in technological development, marketing, game standards and the halls are at a high level. But nine pin is a better and harder game than ten pin bowling. It is a game that requires great concentration and strength. Sorry guys but I mean, you don’t know and you can’t play nine pin bowling so well. But every nin pin bowler in a very short time will be successful in a ten pin bowling game.

Everyone: attempting to get a skrike in bowling by practicing Physicist: "We may regard the present state of the universe as the effect of its past and the cause of its future. An intellect which at a certain moment would know all forces that set nature in motion, and all positions of all items of which nature is composed, if this intellect were also vast enough to submit these data to analysis, it would embrace in a single formula the movements of the greatest bodies of the universe and those of the tiniest atom; for such an intellect nothing would be uncertain and the future just like the past would be present before its eyes."

they're making 3,000 bowling balls a day at that ONE factory... There's no way people are buying enough bowling bowls to support that many workers!

so the conclusion is: all "professional" bowlers are cheats.

You'd be surprised. I happen to be a storm employee, all those balls are on back order. They are able too pay us a solid 18/h with monthly bonuses. Along with work trips, pto, and such.
